Blackburn vs Swansea Match Preview

Blackburn secured a goalless draw at home the last game week, against Stoke. It was their fourth unbeaten game in a row, and the result stood true to their objective of qualifying for the playoffs.

As of now, the team is placed eighth in the table, trailing by just four points below the playoff mix. Except for Leeds, and West Brom at the top two positions, rest of the teams in the playoff zone have been inconsistent in the past several weeks.

If Blackburn can keep their current momentum going on, they surely do possess a chance to make it into the post-season.

Elsewhere, Swansea lost 1-0 on the road, against Fulham. Adding this defeat, the team has now gone winless in ten of their preceding thirteen match-ups.

It seems the squad has stopped performing at the worst time possible. The campaign is about to come to an end, and they had playoff entry in their sights.

Blackburn vs Swansea Prediction

Home advantage will play a big role in determining the outcome of the game. Since April of last year, Blackburn have lost just twice at home, and they stood unbeaten in 12 of their preceding 13 appearances at this venue. Keep note that they were also invincible in eight of their last nine overall match-ups.

On the other hand, Swansea were winless in ten of their former thirteen fixtures, and were so in ten of their prior eleven road trips. In addition, no team on the road have won an h2h clash this decade, and during the period, Blackburn secured a 100% winning record at home against this opponent, barring a 2-2 draw in 2019.

Finally, teams above Blackburn are performing inconsistently at present, and it’s a great opportunity for the team to make it into playoffs. Aided with their home advantage, Blackburn surely will go after a huge win this Saturday.
